Congratulations Oregon Open Competitors and Teams!
Oregon Open celebrated it's ninth anniversary on Saturday, September 7, 2013. With more than 600 competitors on the mats, it was once again the largest Jiu Jitsu event in Oregon.
We are proud to share that in bringing the local Jiu Jitsu community together, Oregon Open was able to raise funds to support the Oregon Food Bank. Our total donation of $975 (plus food donations) will go directly toward fighting hunger in our local communities.
Oregon Open is a traditional Jiu Jitsu tournament where matches are decided by highest score, submission, or referee stoppage. Both the Gi and No-gi events follow a single elimination format but with consolation matches in an effort to provide all competitors with at least two rounds.
This year, the display of Northwest Jiu Jitsu talent at the Oregon Open was amazing - from the youth competitors on up. Athletes showed true heart and sportsmanship throughout the day, supporting their teammates and giving it their all. Congratulations to the top teams: Ribiero/Lovato NW - 1st place; SBGi - 2nd place; Impact Jiu Jitsu - 3rd place. Click here to see the full results.
Thank you to all the competitors, coaches and spectators who attended the event. Much appreciation goes out to Oregon Open's amazing staff, volunteers and sponsors who help promote and grow Jiu Jitsu in the Northwest: Oregon National Guard, Pineapple Smash Salsa, Bridge City Fight Shop, Ground Fighter Grappling Gear, VXRSI, and more. Oregon Open photographers did a great job capturing the event. Visit SmithHammer Photography and Kristensphoto to see the action.
